48 Hours in Paris – Where to DineLike0

 

One more croissant please? Nope. That wasn’t the phrase I used the most, surprisingly during this 3rd trip to Paris. It was, ‘pass the bread please!’ and ‘I love cheese’. With endless bistros and brasseries, la France had a hold of me with the vino’s, the cheeses and surprisingly the Mediterranean food and the great company of new friendships. Here are the 4  places I wined and dined in 48 Hours in Paris.

Where to Dine in Paris

 

Le Grand Salon

Hilton Paris Opera recently opened its doors once again after an extensive renovation. Get ready to be amazed with a soaring of 46-foot high ceilings and hand-painted frescos dedicated to the Parisian Golden Age, Le Grand Salon is the hub for guests and Parisian people to mingle, connect, and savor the beautiful Belle Epoque surroundings. This sophisticated place offers a culinary escape regardless the time of the day.

Restaurant Lazare Paris

Right across Hilton Opera Paris is restaurant Lazare Paris. A bistro style with a twist. The restaurant has long bar with tables around it and our long rectangular wooden table with 22 of our friends  facing the open style kitchen. We ordered the Salade de haricots verts, artichauts à l’huile de noiset, Sélection de charcuterie fin,  Œufs de poule mimosa, au thon et au crab (my favorite!) Calamars sautés à l’ail et au piment d’Espelett with a main dish of Cabillaud cuit au plat, tomate, gingembre et basilic. Absolutely delicious and ended with Crumble de framboise.

Parvis de la Gare Saint-Lazare / Rue Intérieure, 75008 Paris, France

Open Mondays to Sundays 7:30am – midnight

Nai Paris

La cuisine Libanaise. For the love of homos, kebbeh, labneh and grilled. Nai Paris is a family owned business that has been opened for 10 years and growing. I couldn’t believe I found it! Rumors has it that it is the best lebanese food in the country. Strangely enough, I was craving a little bit of home cooked food and was glad I found the last table for two right in the corner for lunch. Paul, who owns this hidden gem runs the restaurant with his wife and brother. It is the place to eat home cooked Lebanese food and has loyal fans and regular visitors from all over the world!

L’estaminet Au Marche Des Enfants Rouge

Right in the middle of the oldest covered market in Paris is L’estaminet Des Enfants Rouge. A lovely market setting and menu that changes every month with different daily dishes. A place to for cheese and wine during the day break, lovely brunch menus on Sundays and a great place to grab a bite with friends.

  • I’ve been on the road a lot in Lebanon which has been an adventure on its own! The Infiniti Q30 2.0 has the navigation system with updated maps of Lebanon which made it easier to find my way around. It’s things like this I love the most about returning back here. Endless road trips with friends and despite Lebanon being so small, the adventures are endless! #infinitilebanon #Q30
  • Home sweet home ♥️ Spent the weekend dancing the night away and at the beach during the day!
How was your weekend?? 🇱🇧
  • Compassion is power. Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, fear and happiness. 
Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery and to smile with those who are happy. Compassion towards others is what makes me human and it’s a skill that I’ve learned to cultivate. And if you don’t have it, then it would be difficult for me to have you in my life. 
So this is a reminder to be good to each other today and to those you don’t know. God knows how many of us need it. 
Happy Saturday ♥️
  • Lake Chouwen - Lebanon 🇱🇧
A beautiful reserve, a 45 minutes hike and an adventurous location through Jabal Moussa! I even drove through the tiniest road into the mountains and was freaking out but made it through thanks to my co-pilot :)!
Lebanon is filled and surrounded with beautiful nature. 🇱🇧
Had an incredible day exploring Lebanon with @ramimansourr @mikhaelbitar @sarahdibrahim @abbas_kalel
  • Lebanon’s morning activities are filled with daily road trips across the mountains and the coast with close friends. Stopping by historical landmarks and eating the best zaatar in small villages. It also helps when your #infiniti car has BOSE sound-system 😊
Happy Tuesday everyone! 🇱🇧♥️ #Q30 #infinitilebanon
  • Good morning from home in Lebanon in Beit Douma. I can’t tell you how happy I am to be back in Lebanon!!! Have you ever been?

I’ve added an article on a guide to 9 guesthouses in Lebanon, you can click the link in my bio.
  • There really isn’t any better way to sail across Madeira Island than with Pedro and his gang! @rotadoscetaceos2016 We saw whales and swam with wild dolphins!!!! We jumped in the (freezing) Atlantic sea and went diving and discovered the most beautiful island 🌴 Now it’s your turn to go!
  • A beautiful slow morning in Madeira 🌴
Isn’t it beautiful?
  • I believe in giving people time...Time to process the good and the bad because there is something so beautiful about unforced bonds. 
I’m a forever kind of person. I don’t have room for temporary. I believe in big love, of growing old with your friends and soulmates. I believe in being there for people through thick and thin. I believe in not giving up when things get tough. I believe in relationships that can make it through everything.
  • It was sunny and we were heading to the pool in Lisbon when all of a sudden a little rain cloud passed and so decided to just walk out and get some pastel de nata 😊
  • Today, my mind is like a laptop set up. 
I have 20 tabs open, 4 of them are frozen and I have no idea where the music is coming from... 🤷🏼‍♀️ Dreaming of going back to Madeira 🌴
